COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Frères de la Bière.

Initialement nommée "les Frères de la Bière", elle est le fruit d’un partenariat avec un brasseur anglais, John Davidson de la Swale Brewery, dans le cadre d’un projet Interreg.

Blonde, légère en alcool, un houblon aromatique du Kent, utilisé très généreusement lui confère son caractère unique.. "Dès l’attaque, l’amertume est là, puissante, enrobante,bien associée au malt. Structure moelleuse, bien maltée et sans lourdeur. Du houblon à l’état nature envahit le palais. Les amateurs vont en raffoler" Bière Magazine mars-avril 2006 Exportée au USA sous le nom de Thiriez EXTRA

Golden in colour, pours with a thick pillowy head. Quite a hoppy aroma as described by the beer, but there is Saison character still there as well. Has moderately high bitterness and good fermentation flavour.

sir__v (726) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 5, 2013
On tap @ La Capsule, Lille-FR. Color: pours blond beer with small carbonization and big white foam. Smell: good equilibrium of malt and hops as typical belgium ale. Taste: nice beer with equilibrium, malt and hops. Aftertaste: nice bitterness and wet bitterness. Really drinkable as "bière de soif".

L’étoile du Nord est une bière blonde / ambrée assez pétillante à la mousse fine. Ses arômes sont houblonnés et floraux. En bouche, on retrouve l’amertume d’une IPA et la douceur de cette petite perle. L’amertume est à la fois fine et persistante. L’étoile du Nord est douce et dispose de peu d’aigreur.

It has a weird (not good) taste. Something strange is in the aftertaste. Would not recommend ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Abio (1630) - Waasland, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2013
Cloudy golden coloured beer. The head should hold some longer. Fruits and flowers, good grassy hopped end some spices. Decent.

Draft to goblet Aroma of hay, tangerine, sweet red pepper. Appearance is a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Taste of tortilla and hops...interesting.

HopRedHead (393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle at La Fine Mousse. Pours golden orange with a short fluffy white head. Aroma is grassy hops, zest and bready malt. Taste is bizarre, hay, grass, lemon and a weird malt character. Bitterness didn't complement the beer a whole lot, I'm not even sure what style of beer it was. Kinda refreshing, just a weird combination of flavours.

jamesie1857 (1482) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2013
330ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Pours clear golden amber with a good off white head leaving some lace. Aroma is malty, fruity, spicy cinnamon and a bit grassy. Flavour is bitter malty sweet in start, moving to bitter grapefruit in the middle and end. Good malt kick and a long hop finish.

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2013
Small white head. Hazy opaque yellow body with light carbonation. Resiny tropical fruit aroma with spicy toffee notes. Dry-sweet resiny herbal taste with blackberry notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Drying resiny earthy blackberry aftertaste with spicy oily notes. Nice, interesting, unusual. (0.33l Bottle, Couleurs des Bieres, Montpellier.)

berntholer (1054) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2013
ivory white head that disappears quite quick, slight foam head and some lacing. straw-yellow orange colour. has a faint candylike vanilla smell right after opening but fades quickly, grass, malt, yeast and some sweetness. can’t pick up anything in the taste really, the only thing is a dry bitterness followed by a long bitter aftertaste. medium carbonation and a rather thin body. nope, this doesn’t do it for me. 33 cl / lot 360 / best before 10-2014
